Oooops! The real Village People

Boy, are our faces red.

As eagle-eyed reader Romulus Smyth astutely pointed out, we here at were hoodwinked. As it turns out, the photograph of the Village People that we posted yesterday wasn’t really the Village People at all, but rather a band of wanna-be imposters.

We deeply regret the error, and we promise that it will never ever happen again.

Here is a verified authentic photograph of the real Village People:


(gotta love the 80’s, don’t you?)

The Village People will be playing at the Alive @ 5 concerts series in Albany’s Riverfront Park at 5pm on Thursday, July 2. Admission is free.

    Well, you know, it takes a village to make a nippertown. Those poseurs in the original posted picture looked vaguely familiar.
